I have only received 3 lessons so far and all have been a wonderful experience. I am not a professional singer nor have I ever had any lessons singing. I simply just want to learn 1 song to sing to my future husband. OJ has made every lesson fun while I am learning and I know in time I will reach my goal.

Fun, Easy to Work with

This teacher has an easy, fun loving spirit. I have learned important tips to improve my singing, such as, to name a few, where to place my tongue, the importance of enunciation, and scaling from high to low notes without breaking. I would recommend him as a teacher.

Great Teacher

Throughout my life, I have been singing in Gospel choirs and for years, I have been an alto. After meeting with OJ, he helped me find my voice. He was able to determine my vocal range and I found out that I was never an alto, but a lyric soprano. I was so shocked, but excited at the same time. I thought that was amazing because he helped me discover my true vocal range. OJ is knowledgeable, patient, and fun to work with.

About Jacob

My name is Jacob and I have played guitar professionally in Baltimore and Northern Virginia for the past four years. I specialize in jazz and funk guitar but I also have extensive experience playing rock, Latin, blues, and have even been developing the ability to play classical with a pick. I graduated from Goucher College in 2011 with a degree in Music Performance and Jazz Studies. Whether its understanding music theory and composition, learning how to improvise in different stylistic contexts, developing chops, playing with other musicians, or simply plugging in and playing your favorite songs at a volume your neighbors won't appreciate- I can help!

I consider myself to be a fairly laid back teacher. I understand people have busy schedules and the last ...

First rate, easygoing instructor

Jake is great. I have had five lessons to date and have enjoyed our time together immensely. We have a great balance between fundamentals and just playing. I look forward to our next round of sessions.

Further, I was a bit hesitant about finding an instructor online--and I am delighted to be proved wrong. This whole process from web site to a clearly competent instructor in Jake has made this very easy and comfortable.

About Sean

Hi! I'm Sean. I love music and one of my goals in life is to share my love of music with everyone else, in a number of different ways. I'm a senior Music Composition major at UMBC and my primary instrument is guitar. I play a wide range of styles - fingerstyle, classical, rock, jazz, metal, and just about everything in between! My goal is to go to graduate school and become a composer, either in freelance or work in academia. I'm teaching guitar privately to get more teaching experience before I hit the classroom!

I strive to have all of my students become balanced musicians. If reading or theory is a soft spot, we'll apply your strengths and catch up quickly. I also think that being interested in the music that you're playing is incredibly important ...

Great first lesson. High hopes for follow lessons.

I self-taught myself guitar over 35 years ago; mostly forgotten. Sean began with establishing goals that would meet my goals. The feedback to me during the lessons was focused and delivered in a friendly manner. Progression was enhanced due to his manner and his approach to teaching. While this was the first lesson, I am looking forward to future lessons.
